I am a Whitney Tilson fan. I like him. He seems smart and he makes every attempt apply honest valuation principles. He basically touted his Netflix short as the best idea ever. And now to turn around so fast with massive losses…

Huge burn!!

But like a trooper he does more homework, accepts the loss and soldiers on. I imagine his sun will come out tomorrow.

At least he got out. NFLX is soaring now.
